Penrhyncoch is a small village, some three and a half miles inland from the Cardigan Bay coastline in Ceredigion, Wales. The village is part of the community of Trefeurig, and is located between the Afon Stewi and Nant Seilo rivers, about four and a half miles north-east of Aberystwyth.
Penrhyn-coch has a range of facilities including a school, post office, petrol station, social club, football pitch, tennis courts, children's playground, two places of worship St. John's parish church and Horeb Nonconformist chapel, three halls and a nursery.
A memorial to the fallen of both World Wars who came from the village and surrounding area can be found outside the post office. The large block of quartz used for the memorial is said by some to be an ancient standing stone.
St John's Church Penrhyn-coch, a fine Victorian edifice, has been a place of Christian worship since 1881. The building of the church was supported by Sir Pryse of Gogerddan.
The Horeb Welsh Baptist Chapel Penrhyncoch was founded in 1788. Having around 100 members, the chapel benefited from a decision made in 1986 to welcome as members people who were formerly members of other denominations.
The Village Hall is a central hub of the community and each April the Hall is host to the Penrhyn-coch Eisteddfod. The Eisteddfod has been held without a break since the 1960s. The first session is held on Friday evening and limited to children under 18 years who reside within Trefeurig parish.
Each August the Village Hall is host to the Penrhyn-coch Show, at which the competitions include garden produce, cookery, preserves, flower arranging, hand crafts, sewing and knitting, crafts, woodwork, metalwork, and children's competitions.
Merched y Wawr (the Women's Institute) hold regular meetings in the Village Hall - at 7.30 on the second Thursday of the month (from September to May), and various activities are held throughout the year.
